Sappy Gratitude Post with Bonus Video Montage!


First of all, happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers . . . even those not in the U.S.  Tamara and I have so much to be thankful for this year.  While getting laid off from our previous job was not at all fun, we can trace it directly to the beginnings of our freelance adventure.  So, yes, we are thankful that things turned out as they did.

We’d also like to extend our gratitude to Wendy and the other writers at eMoms at Home.  Being a part of eMoms has been a huge part of the last few months, and we are so blessed to have had this opportunity.  Of course, it wouldn’t have meant much without you folks.  Thank you so much for returning often to read our posts, for leaving your own thoughts and insights, and for encouraging us along the way.

Starting a business is hard.  Starting a business with an audience is . . . well, it’s weird.  In some ways, it’s probably a little harder because we are farily open to criticism.  On the other hand, I think it’s probably the best possible thing that could have happened for the Berry-Brewer Freelance Agency. 

Tamara and I are both the type of people who need to be held accountable, and this blog does just that.  We have daily deadlines.  We have to come up with topics.  We absolutely must write every day.  In addition, blogging about our business means we really have to examine it on a regular basis.  We’re constantly uncovering new thoughts and ideas just because we had to have something to write about that day.

Of course, the most important aspect of the blog has been the sense of community that’s been created.  Two months ago, Tamara and I were a couple of gals with an exciting plan and very little idea on how to actually implement it.  Now, we’re becoming successful freelance writers.  We chalk a lot of that up to what has happened here.  You folks have really inspired and taught us.  We’ve made some great business connections through Freelance Parent, and we’re so excited to see where those go in 2008.

Gee, my short Thanksgiving post got really long and sappy all of a sudden.  Here’s what I originally came here to say:

In honor of the upcoming holiday, and the fact that I don’t feel like writing a big post today, I’m going to copy Beth at The Writing Road and share this fun montage with you all.  (Seriously, go visit her blog.  It’s the least I can do since I just stole her idea!)
